Left Brain vs Right Brain

Posted: February 27th, 2011 | Author: Manuel Lima | Filed under: Uncategorized |

I continue to be utterly fascinated by Amira Skomorowska’s tweets, notes, posts, and findings. Here is one of the many absorbing finds:

Left brain: I am the left brain. I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.

Right brain: I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feat. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.

    The spread is beautiful… but the sentiment is sad. It’s a meaningful dichotomy, but I long for a day when scientists and mathematicians are appreciated for using the right side of their brain just as much (if not more) than the left.

    I don’t understand. I thought the left brain vs right brain theories are defunct: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/19/right-brain-left-brain-debunked_n_3762322.html You use the side of your brain you need for the project you’re working on. As Joseph says above, mathematicians use both sides of their brain depending on the task.

    previous comments : it is always a mix of both brainsides, noone stated a mathematician is per se only a leftbrainer - e.g. Einstein had a huge link between both sides - http://digitaljournal.com/article/359866
